New user competition rule: no comp instruction drawings

We've added a new rule for people creating their own competitions.

Moderators will delete drawings that are created for the sole purpose of promoting competitions. For example if you create a drawing that has words on it that say "I have started a competition, please enter, this is the competition, ...."

There are a few reasons for this:
- These are usually not really drawings, mostly they usually consist of just words
- This encourages people to rate and comment these "competition announcement drawings" and it is unfair on the community if these drawings are being rated based on competition popularity and not drawing merit

We understand it is a great way to get attention to your competitions and it is usually just for fun, but we do try to keep non-drawings off the site and we feel it's important to not encourage activity that might skew the rating system. We hope you understand our perspective and thanks for understanding.


The best way to support our community is to just keep drawing - even if it's for fun and not serious. Another way is by taking time to occasionally rate and comments drawings by new or learning artists.

Re: New user competition rule: no comp instruction drawings

Oh Geez, I was going to make one soon for my comp. I'm glad I saw this. I usually just make them so that if people don't understand my description of what their supposed to do in the comp, they can look at the picture and get an idea of what they're supposed to draw but I understand where your coming from. Thanks Mick ;D

Re: New user competition rule: no comp instruction drawings

Perhaps a good idea is to create an entry for your own competition yourself as a way to show people what it's about.

For example if your competition is about "zoo animals", you could draw an elephant and link to it from your competition post in the forum as an example of what people can draw.

Re: New user competition rule: no comp instruction drawings

XD ahh nice information there... Yeah I think it would be nice to do it that way ^^

However I also only do example pictures for my competition since sometimes it's hard for people to understand what they have to do xD I lack at explaning correctly haha...

Re: New user competition rule: no comp instruction drawings

And if there's a real drawing (I mean there was effort and so) that tells about the competition, will such drawings get deleted?
